Totally random post because I'm on lunch break and I feel like it.
Just had bubble tea for the first time. You'd think being interested in Japan I'd have had this before, esp. since I like Tapioca, but it's rather expensive and I was afraid I wouldn't like it. Well, I don't LOVE it, but I don't hate it either. The flavor was Earl Grey and the tapioca was flavored with Raspberries. It gave the tea a milky flavor and it was disconcerting to have the tapioca come up the straw periodically (could have been solved with a smaller straw, I realize), but the flavors worked well together and the tapioca was well done instead of being hard (which I kind of expected. What's funny is it DID NOT go with the crispy eel sushi I was eating for lunch. Fish and raspberries--not so much. Should have had plain flavor, or drunk it after the sushi.
I do love Newbury Street in Boston though. I only work in town one day a week now which is unfortunate in summer as there is so much going on, but there are SOOO many people as well. Like the fact that working in town is nice because you don't have to drive, but then you have to take the T... Enjoy what you have.
